10th rock?

  1. Mar 18, 2004 #1
    I think it's called "Edna"...anyway, it's named after an inuit goddess and it being called the 10th planet of our Solar System...whatever happened to that Quauar (or however you spell it) planet that everyone was talking about not too long ago?

    Any information on either of these planets would be appreciated. Any confessions that you have no idea what I'm talking about and have questions about my sanity...:wink:

    ... is the word you're looking for.

    There's another thread in GA&C - "Scientists find 10th Planet" - which has an extensive discussion on this, Quaoar, usw. Also a thread "what is the largest orbit", ...

    If you still have questions, please come right back and ask!

    [Edit: just in case you were looking for Edna Everage :wink: ]
